Description: 

Netherton Montessori Nursery School is situated in rural Perthshire, surrounded by farmland and woods.  We are located within the proprietor's house and provide real home from home experiences for the children.  Dr Maria Montessori stated that 'Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment' and it is our intention to rpovide your child with these learning experiences.  We aim to satisfy your child's expectations and ear the trust needed for the curiosity to be satisfied and self-development to arise. 

 

Your child arrives at nursery more or less in a cocoon of wonder and expectation at the age of 2.5.  In less that two years the same child will be sufficiently independant and accomplished to get through a whole day with minimum adult intervention. 

 

The essentials of personal co-ordination and control learnt will include washing, dressing, eating, preparing food and being physically agile; and social skills include holding a conversation, taking turns, having opinions, making choices, exercising self-discipline and acting with joy and enthusiasm at work and play. 

 

Intellectually and creatively, your child will be able to exercise the concentration and judgment needed to perform a wide range of tasks in maths, language, art, music and drama and physical activity.  The acquisition of general knowledge, with the early introduction of geography, history, biology and ecology will light a spark of curiosity that will be harnessed for life.  Although there is a higly structured curriculum through which these subjects are presented at each stage, your child experiences only a seamless atmosphere of holistic development driven by the will to learn. 

 

Depending on their date of birth, your children will leave us at an age somewhere between four and a half and five and a half.  What can we give them to take forward to their new primary schools?  There is a check list which Montessori teachers use as a guide and anyone would benefit from achieving it: joy, love of work, love of beauty and reality, ability to concentrate and work alone, sense of social responsibility, love of community, independence and compassion.

 

When parents come to the school for the final meeting as we say goodbye to your children, we have to buy in extra boxes of tissues becuase it is the case that this list is pretty well always complete.
